    2004 Vanguard 'Race' Sunfish

    Nice boat. Why buy crappy Chinese made boat if you can buy boat like this? My problem is I own three Vanguard Sunfish already.

    Are there any Polish or Danish sunfish owners here on the forum?

    I have no doubt that Worlds boats will come with dollies only. It will be up to you to get a trailer or cartop it. I personally don't like to use a trailer for transporting a small boat. First of all most trailers have too firm suspension, and I've seen cracked boats because of that. Also, you...

    Are there any Polish or Danish sunfish owners here on the forum?

    Zbieraj, Did you get that Sunfish? If not your best bet is to get one after 2022 Sunfish Worlds in Italy. You can have mine after I finish racing. If you changed your mind you can still visit Lake Gard and watch races. I rented an apartment just 6 minutes by foot from Circolo Vela Torbole. You...

    This would be a perfect sail for someone from Poland or Denmark or Austria.

    Splash Shield Painting

    One dude in my club painted top of his boat red and complained about paint rubbing off and staining his shorts. My recommendation was buying red shorts. If you not going to use gelcoat go with Awlgrip Marine Paint.

    Are you absolutely set on buying a Sunfish sailboat? Chinese boats have major quality problems. Did you ever consider Europe dinghy? If one day you are in San Diego CA, please let me know and I will set up a boat for you. I race in the Sunfish Club and you can read about it here: Home - Sunfish...

    Different mast cap diameters?

    I helped a friend to put a bottom cup and it was too big. I turned it on a lathe to make it fit.

    Super Sunfish rig

    This is a good guess. Sunfish with racing sail (75 square feet) is rated at D-PN 99.6 Super Sunfish (65 square feet) is rated at D-PN 100.7 Not so super I guess :)

    Super Sunfish rig

    It is complicated, but I wanted all controls and all double ended. I could change it all to single and mount it on boom. Dropping traveler and inhaul could be a way to go. It's all for fun and experience. Here are photos of Super Sunfish rig.

    Super Sunfish rig

    I hate to put a dent on your idea but... I have Super Sunfish rig and I don't find it that great. I also rigged Europe dinghy rig on Sunfish and found it to be too much PITA to deal with and very little gain. Good thing I didn't drill even one hole in the deck and that was not easy.

    2019 Sunfish Worlds

    That's an easy one. In China you can only believe in 中共中央總書記. BTW: Don't buy crappy Chinese boats. Buy used Vanguards. You will get twice the boat for half the money. :)

    2019 Sunfish Worlds

    That free sample was ONLY for direct shipment to the US that covers time from 2019/6/21 to 2019/11/18. Boats from Bonaire could NOT be shipped directly back to the US. Most likely they would have to come back via Caracas or Kingston or both (one after another). Kingston, Jamaica is NOT on the...
